Where to Catch the Latest Deals on Amazon
Amazon’s recent launch of their Countdown to Black Friday means great deals on products starting now and continuing throughout the holiday season.
Within the Black Friday countdown, there are a ton of products available at any given time in the Health & Personal Care category, so that will be one to watch – you can see current and upcoming deals. This category will have scales, fitness trackers, some headphones, massagers, braces, supplements, and more.
Keep an eye on Amazon Warehouse Deals Fitness Trackers – this section offers huge discounts on products that are open box or “used-like new.” This section has great options for replacement bands and fitness trackers.
While there are a few different types of products listed in this section, you’ll know what you’re getting based on the product description. For example, “Like New” is open box (brand new, but the packaging makes it unsaleable as a “New” product). Other descriptions include, “Very Good,” “Good,” and “Acceptable” and are all pretty self-explanatory.
Amazon has some useful gift guides that showcase this year’s top gifts. In the Electronics Gift Guide – Active Lifestyle, you’ll find a huge selection of products ranging from active cameras to fitness trackers and wireless headphones. This is a perfect page to visit often and see what’s on sale.
Which Products to Watch For
Not sure what you’re after just yet? Here are some gifts ideas that are sure to be priced nicely this holiday season.
Garmin Fitness Tracker Discounts
Garmin released several new wearables this year, with two watches, a fitness tracker, and a kid’s fitness tracker coming in just the past few months. This means a few things for gift-givers (and treating yourself): First, you have some amazing options for Garmin wearables. Second, there’s sure to be some major discounts on the older models. While we don’t expect the newest devices to be discounted much (or at all), it’s worth checking out these impressive new devices:
- Vivoactive 3: Sleek and sport smartwatch
- Vivomove HR: Stylish hybrid smartwatch
- Vivosport: Water resistant GPS fitness tracker
- Vivofit Jr. 2: Fun and affordable activity tracking and motivations for kids
Then there are just a few of the models we expect to see steeply discounted:
- Vivoactive HR: The best-selling smart fitness watch is already priced below $200
- Vivofit Jr.: The original tracker for kiddos should be super cheap through the end of the year
- Fenix 5X Sapphire: Garmin’s top of the line multisport fitness and adventure watch should be discounted for the holidays
- Vivofit 3: A useful tracker priced well below $100
Fitbit is predicted to take a huge chunk of holiday sales in the fitness category. This is due to not only the bestselling fitness trackers but also in part because of the new smartwatch Fitbit Ionic (see it here) and the new wireless headphones the Fitbit Flyers. The newest devices are not likely to be on sale for Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but there are other Fitbit devices that will have slashed prices on those busy shopping days. These include:
Fitbit Surge: The original GPS watch has been discontinued to make way for the Ionic, but you can still grab this gem at a steep discount while it lasts.
Charge 2: The bestselling fitness tracker (and our top pick from Fitbit) usually gets at least a $20 discount for holidays, so we’re anticipating at least this amount off for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Alta HR: The Alta HR is a great alternative to the Charge 2, and it should get the same kind of discount. Be on the lookout for this slim, stylish device to be on sale for this year’s gift-giving.
Headphones make a great gift, and there’s sure to be a healthy selection to choose from in the coming weeks. Keep an eye on this page: Top 10 Headphone Deals for the most up to date sales. Headphones will also
Action cameras make great gifts for those hard to shop for adventurers in your life. GoPro is the kind of action cameras, so keep an eye out for discounts on older models. The latest and greatest from GoPro, the HERO6 (available here) would be an extra special gift, but you can save a bit of money going for the HERO5 (see it here) or the bestselling HERO4 (see it here).
The holiday season is a great time to pick up some fitness equipment, whether for a gift or for yourself, and there will be deals in every category you can think of. Check out the top-selling and highly rated Concept2 Indoor Rower (click to see current price) or an inexpensive Stamina Elliptical Trainer.
